Catholic World News - August 14, 2012
Nellie Gray, the founder of the annual March for Life in Washington, DC, was found dead at her home on August 13.
A native of Texas and convert to Catholicism, Nellie Gray was instrumental in organizing the 1st March for Life on January 22, 1974, to commemorate the date of the Roe v. Wade decision that swept away all laws restricting abortion. Until the time of her death she remained the main organizer of the annual event, which has brought hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists to the nation’s capital.
